We're launching two new apps - come and join the party!

Join us to celebrate the launch of two exciting new apps that reveal the fascinating hidden stories of Leicester's Cultural Quarter.

Hidden Stories and Sounds of the Cultural Quarter use the latest locative technology to deliver an immersive experience for visitors to the Cultural Quarter. Location-specific content - sounds from past and present, poetry, plays and narrative - is revealed as visitors explore the area, helping us to re-imagine urban history.

Poet and playwright Carol Leeming will give a live performance at 7.15pm of her choreopoem Love the life you live ... live the life you love, one of eight creative writing commissions for Affective Digital Histories. She performed this to a sell-out crowd at Embrace Arts on 2 October so it's not to be missed.

We also invite guests to experiment with traditional print processes and cutting edge technology to create their own original art work which will then feature in the New Incunable Print Shop exhibition, the culmination of the Affective Digital Histories print project.

There'll be music and refreshments, plus an opportunity for guests to record their memories of the Cultural Quarter in the Affective Digital Histories video booth.

The launch event is from 6.30-9.00pm on Thursday 27 November at Lightbox Studios, LCB Depot, Rutland Street, Leicester.

Please note the event is immediately preceded by the press launch, starting at 5.45pm.
